In the Bat Cave: Tiergarten Schönbrunn
rying to warm up during my visit to the Vienna Zoo sends me into the tropical house where the temperature (and humidity) is a balmy 85 degrees. One of the exhibits are the bats - but a unique way (I think) to showcase these animals is with an interactive bat cave. One walks into the darkness - save for the blue light inside - and the bats are flying about overhead squeaking. It was actually a very interesting experience...and not one bat flew into my hair!
The bat cave and the tropical bird house were welcome respites from the cold. But not the insect house…I just moved right on by. For more of my adventures in the Schönbrunn Zoo and in Austria, check out my Spark Page:
